Fluo-Oil Fluorinated Oil for Microfluidics
- Product SKU: EU-FLUO-7500-10
- Category: Emulseo, Microfluidic Accessories, Microfluidic Liquids & Chemicals
Thanks to their colorless, odorless, and biocompatible properties, fluorinated oils are widely used in microfluidics for droplet applications. Fluo-Oil 40, based on Fluorinert 40, and Fluo-Oil 7500, based on Novec 7500, are well suited for water-in-oil emulsions as a stable carrier phase. Fluo-Oil 135 and Fluo-Oil 200 are alternatives to Fluo-Oil 7500 and Fluo-Oil 40, respectively.
Available in bottles of 10 mL, 20 mL, 50 mL, and 100 mL.
We have chosen these oils for their high stability and wide chemical compatibility. Fluo-Oil 40 and Fluo-Oil 7500 are used in a wide range of applications: cell sorting, protein studies, research on living cells, or droplet encapsulation to name a few. Their permeability to gases makes experiments with living cells possible.
Fluo-Oil 40 contains FC-40TM from 3M company, and Fluo-Oil 7500 contains NovecTM 7500 from 3M company. Fluo-Oil 135 and 200 are alternatives with similar properties to respectively Fluo-Oil 7500 and Fluo-Oil 40.
Use Fluo-Oil 40 to dilute FluoSurf in FC-40, and Fluo-Oil 7500 to dilute FluoSurf in HFE 7500. FluoSurf is a high-performance surfactant specifically formulated to get highly stable and monodisperse emulsions. To find out more about oil/surfactant compatibility, the experts of Darwin Microfluidics invite you to consult their review "Choosing the best oil and surfactant for droplet generation".
Fluo-Oil being fluorinated oils, we recommend using a fluorophilic coating in your microfluidic channels. A standard hydrophobic coating can also work.

Fluo-Oil 40 is slightly more viscous than Fluo-Oil 7500, so the droplet generation speed with Fluo-Oil 7500 will be a bit faster than with Fluo-Oil 40, and also closer to water. Besides this difference in viscosity, the two oil types have quite similar properties.
